Back to School Blues!

I'm discovering that quite a few of the blogging sisterlocks sisters are teachers. Only teachers will know just how I feel when, somewhere between mid to late August just want to sing the back-to-school blues!! I'm feeling it so strongly now! I went to Woodstock, Ontario to meet my family for the weekend. Driving home, I began feeling somewhat melancholy. I couldn't quite tell why I was feeling so down. At first I thought it was because I had just left my family and was missing them already. Somewhere between Woodstock and Windsor the light bulb came on! It dawned on me that I was experiencing the back-to-school blues AKA the Labor day-blues. I had been busy working on my long range plans for my new assignment over the summer. Instead of teaching 6th grade mathematics (as I have done for the past 6 years), I will be teaching 8th grade Algebra and Pre-Algebra. I'm looking forward to a change in pace and the different challenges of working with adolescents as opposed to pre-teens.

Because I had just come from church, I was already made-up and dressed-up, so I decided to get out of the doldrums by taking some photos for my blog :-) What else is there in life to cheer a girl up, but taking photos of her Sisterlocks?! I set my hair on Caurso Curlers this morning I really enjoy the sophisticated look I get from them.

Regardless of what subject or grade level you teach I'd like to convey my best wishes to all the educators who are reading my blog. Shake off those blues and have a successful and rewarding new school year.

Happy Birthday, Sylv!!

My girlfriend's birthday is in August and even though, because of our busy schedules, we don't talk much during the year, we always try to get together twice a year to celebrate each other's birthday together. For Sylv's birthday this year we went out for a meal then went to Second City Comedy Club. I laughed my head off and was still in a giggling mood after we left. I'm wearing my 18 month-old locks in a braidout style.

This is not exactly a "hair" picture! I was just relaxing on my chaise lounge and taking a few casual photos. I like the way this turned out so I decided to share it with my SisterLock sisters.

Pony Tail

Ever since I had my SisterLocks installed, I've been dreaming of wearing a ponytail. I thought it might be a good idea to document my progression toward that goal. Ive worn different types of pseudo ponytails which I'd like to highlight until I get my own genuine, bona fide pony!
